Avery Romero drove home Steven Linkous on an infield single that deflected by Spokane pitcher Grant Zawadzki in the 10th inning, Ethan Westphal picked up the win with two scoreless innings of relief and Boise beat Spokane 5-4 in the Northwest League baseball season opener for both teams.
Boise designated hitter Jonathan Piron and first baseman Conner Hale each had two hits, and Piron and second baseman Romero had two RBIs apiece.
The Hawks jumped out to a 4-0 lead after three innings, but Spokane rallied with one run in the sixth and three in the seventh.
The two teams meet again Saturday.
